If its washed and sludge free I'll buy more.

OK for special offer price
We used the slate to fill in under the hedge to keep the weeds down. It's hard work shovelling them out of the bag, so if you can, split the bag.

40mm Plum Slate, very poor quality.
I ordered 2 x 850kg bags of 40mm Plum Slate. The white bag on the right was top quality. The green Travis Perkins bag was very poor quality. So poor in fact , that it resembled dusty shale. My clients was not happy at all. The Manager at Travis Perkins gave me a refund on the poor quality bag. For this I gave 2 stars. I was told the plum slate is supplied by Tarmac!

The price of the slate doubled in only 2 months.
I purchased 2 bags. The first bag was good quality, the second was poor including (a lot of dust). I was just about to order a further bag, and 2 months later the price has more than doubled. Search around you will get a reasonable price.

Plumb slate
I Bought two bulk bags. Delivery was good and put where I wanted. One bag was better quality slate than the other. Once it was down and washed, it looked great.
